Travis Kelce responds after being called out for 'inappropriate behaviour' during Super Bowl

Travis Kelce responds after being called out for 'inappropriate behaviour' during Super Bowl

The Kansas City Chiefs player has had his say

Travis Kelce has responded after being called out for an incident during the Kansas City Chiefs win over the San Francisco 49ers at the Super Bowl.

Things got a little bit hairy for a while there, but Kelce and crew managed to get the win in the end, giving him the perfect chance to celebrate with Taylor Swift.

Some fans reckoned he might even have taken the opportunity to propose in the aftermath of the Super Bowl win, but alas for those who are somewhat over-invested in someone else's relationship, it was not to be.

Besides, other fans were instead wondering what on earth had been going on between Kelce and Chiefs coach Andy Reid during the game.

Kelce's a passionate player, but some called him out for 'inappropriate behaviour' after the 49ers were the first to score and went clear of the Chiefs.

After a team move didn't go well, Kelce could be seen running over to his coach and shouted something, before he appeared to bump into the 65-year-old.

While some NFL fans were a bit upset at this, it all seems to be water under the bridge between Kelce and Reid as they enjoyed the fruits of their victory.

Once the game was done, Kelce had nothing but words of praise for his coach and was superlative in his description of the Chiefs coach.

He said: "He's one of the best leaders of men I've ever seen in my life. And he's helped me a lot with that, with channelling that emotion, with channelling that passion.

"I owe my entire career to that guy and being able to kind of control how emotional I get and just love him."

It really seems to be a case of all's well that ends well, as Reid said that Kelce 'caught me off balance' during the game while saying he loved and appreciated the player's passion.

Reid said that Kelce was telling him something along the lines of 'just put me in, I'll score, I'll score', and told ESPN that they had a hug after the game where the player said 'sorry about that'.

It seems as though the Chiefs coach doesn't mind a bit of passion from his players as long as it's channelled in the right way, as Reid said he understood Kelce's desire to be on the field and playing.

It's not the first incident they've had this season, with Kelce throwing his helmet to the ground during a Christmas Day defeat to the Los Angeles Raiders and Reid not initially giving it back.

Still, they've ended the season by winning the Super Bowl so clearly their collaboration is working.
